After managing 2 French brand store locations over the last 6 years, one thing that I have learned is the Parisian magic simplicity of combining a dress with sneakers. Sometimes the pairing can be obvious and uncomplicated. However, there is something to be said about having fun with your choices to achieve high style with little fuss. I personally wear dresses probably 75% days out of the year. For 3 reasons…
You don’t have to worry about matching 2 pieces, it is just one and done.
They are just plain comfortable. I find more convenient and easy to wear than leggings.
They are so feminine and just make me feel pretty.
Obviously, when you pair a dress with sneakers the comfort factor gets knocked up a notch! Most of the pairing include long dresses. Simply because longer dresses are so easy and carefree. You can easily dash around town without worrying about bits hanging out and if you want to spontaneously sit down and play patty cake with your kids it’s not a problem. Basically, they are stress-free. For colder evening add a cardigan or even throw a sweatshirt on top for a completely different look.
As I have always been a fan of the French brand Veja I choose some of my faves from their current collection to match a variety of dresses that are all swoon-worthy.
